News From Home

Abandoned by its Palestinian owner in the 1948 war, requisitioned by the Israeli government as vacant, rented to Jewish Algerian immigrants in 1956, and purchased by a university professor who renovates it in 1980, this West Jerusalem building is no longer the microcosm it once was 25 years ago. Its inhabitants dispersed, this common space has disintegrated, but remains both an emotional and physical center at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian situation. Amos Gitai completes the trilogy, which began with 1980’s HOUSE and continued with 1998’S A HOUSE IN JERUSALEM. Creating a sort of human archeology, Gitai explores the relationships between the house’s inhabitants, past and present, and between Israelis and Palestinians as each in his or her own way becomes a sign of the region’s destiny.
